Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Still soft stools

I appreciate all the answers to my question the other day. But here's another one, I've had this stray since Oct 20, found her starving and neglected. She got diarrhea and has been wormed twice with strongid from the vet.She now has mucus and her stools are still extremely soft, she may sit and a little comes out. Do you think it could be the worm meds working? I haven't seen any worms, she eats good, plays and drinks. I can't come up with the money to do her vet check yet, but also wanted her to get a little healthier before her first shots.I would say shes around the age of 12-14 weeks old.Thanks in advance!

    Yes, dewormers cause icky poo. Some cats need more dewormings if they were infested from birth, so let your vet know when you bring her in for her first set of kitten shots. Kittens need three sets of shots and then a rabies vaccine for full immunity. There are vets that work on payment plans... find one! She could be sick with something else that could damage her organs if you do not bring her in to be seen. Also feed her a kitten-only food for her first year such as MaxKitten, which contains no by-products and natural ingredients. Thanks for rescuing! ^_^ -PNS for The Nutro Company, Franklin, TN
